Please help offset/assist with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate the financial burden for our mother.

Violet Norris had a Moped accident in November, where she had to have her shoulder joint replaced, as well as a broken thumb (on the other hand) and many scrapes, bruises; both physical and emotional, etc...on Monday (Feb 14) she had to have another surgery to tear the ligaments that healed around the shoulder improperly because they were not allowing her to move her arm above shoulder height. Now she can move her arm using her other hand, but is still in a lot of pain and must undergo physical therapy as much as the state will cover...We just hope it will be enough for now.
Because of this accident, she lost her job, leaving her on state insurance, and temporary disability which will be up in May. To top this all off, she is too young (58) to claim Medicare benefits, or live in a nursing facility where she can heal without the stress of financial burdens and all the paperwork that comes with it.
We are her three children, and only family. David (34) is married, with a one year old, another baby on the way, and paying two mortgages, Sabrina (31) is in the midst of renovating and rebuilding her business after a devastating fire, and Samantha (21) just got out of college and is newly wed and still finding her way. Financially none of us can afford to help our mom the way we want to right now unfortunately.
We hope that if we can get just $10 from 500 people, our mom would be OK, at least for a few more months, hopefully enough time for her to find a new job, and get back on her feet.
Much Love and Aloha!!!
